City of West Fargo proclaims Nov. 25 Small Business Saturday

The City of West Fargo has proclaimed Saturday, Nov. 25, 2017, as Small Business Saturday in West Fargo and urges residents to support small businesses on that day. Annually held the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Small Business Saturday celebrates small businesses and the contributions they make to local economies and communities.

“There are currently 28.8 million small businesses in the United States that represent 99.7 percent of all businesses with employees,” said Matthew Marshall, City of West Fargo Economic Development Director. “These businesses create jobs, boost our local economy and help preserve our neighborhoods and identity.”

To encourage shopping at these businesses, the City of West Fargo will give away a $50 Visa gift card to one lucky shopper for visiting a West Fargo small business. To enter, residents should post a picture of themselves on Twitter or Facebook at a retail small business in West Fargo Nov. 25 with the hashtag #WFSmallBizSat. The winner will be contacted the week of Nov. 27. The city will also feature West Fargo small businesses on Facebook and Twitter.
